Brooks Hotel Edinburgh
Located in Edinburgh's funky West End, this is a contemporary, yet well-priced, city centre hotel. It is housed in an elegant period property and has 46 guest rooms, all of which are impressively bedecked in bold colours and furnished with a mix of carefully chosen antiques and modern furniture. Equally welcoming is the warm hospitality given by the staff at this privately-owned, family-run hotel. The beds are comfy, there's a scattering of contemporary art and bathrooms are equipped with fluffy towels, high-end showers and toiletries and powerful hairdryers. The hotel also has an attractive courtyard at its heart, which is the perfect place for summer lazing while enjoying a drink from the downstairs honesty bar. There's also a cosy residents' lounge where you can enjoy those aforementioned drinks, and a rather handsome dining room in which to enjoy breakfast – which is as good as it is in the other Brooks hotels in Bath and Bristol – and includes award-winning haggis from a local butcher, boiled eggs and soldiers and thick toasted slices of local artisan bread. As for the West End, it's a great neighbourhood, really the elegant Georgian continuation of the New Town but full of independent shops, cool restaurants, venues and galleries, plus it's only a five-minute walk to Princes Street and the castle, ten minutes to the Old Town and Royal Mile. The same people also run two other hotels in Bath and Bristol.
Open all year.
Arriving by train, the hotel is a five-minute walk from Haymarket railway station and tram stop, as well as the stop for the airport shuttle bus. For those travelling by car the hotel has four spaces in a private underground car park located just behind the hotel, these cost £14 a day, but you should ask at the time of booking if it is possible to reserve a space. If the car park is full reception stagg will help make alternative arrangements. Limited on-street parking is also available on Grove Street, which is subject to an hourly charge and a maximum length of stay.
